My sister's riend works for a dentist....is it true that an HIV paients has to tell her that he/she has the virus???
Response from Ms. Gabriel
Dentists and other healthcare workers use universal precautions. This means using a barrier (latex gloves)whenever blood is present. This protects them, not only from HIV, but from a host of other bloodborne pathogens. This eliminates the need for a patient to disclose their HIV status -- which many people wouldn't know if you asked them.
